[cheering] >> we have to do some work right here in the great state of nevada. [cheering] because nevada is a battleground state, you are aware that we have an election going on. >> >> sean: they said the comments would come early in the speech. i assume that's all he's going to say. he said it's a tough day today and only 24 hours after it happened did he say we will bring those people to justice. at no time, did he mention islamic terrorists. perhaps he will refer to thi
country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
yet regarding this announcement by the united states, but earlier we heard from senior government officials, the prime minister -- the former prime minister now of libya and the speaker of parliament holding a press conference. strong condemnation of the attack vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice and the speaker of the parliament saying this attack coincided with september 11th, that they believe there is a link there, hinting that this was carried out by the islamist extremist groups that operate in eastern libya and saying that libya will not allow that its land be used by these groups to carry out what he described as revenge attacks against the west. at the same time saying that they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups. people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans i've spoken to are really saddened by this attack and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> jill, the state department, we saw secretary of state clinton condemning the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the att
are trying to argue that the united states is more popular that ever before around the globe. believe it or not. watch this. >> look at this map. there have been protests around the world over the last several days. and president obama pledged to repair america's relationships with the muslim world. why does the u.s. seem so impotent and why is the u.s. even less popular today in some of these muslim and arab countries than it was four years ago? >> jake, we are not impotent and we are not even less popular to challenge that assessment. i don't know on what basis you make that judgment. but let me -- >> it seems the u.s. government is powerless as this erupts. >> it's exactly the opposite. >> on what basis, our embassies are being breached, people are being killed, our flag is being burned and "death to america" is being chanted. ambassador rice has just taken his cues from the president's own talking points. he was recently quoted at a fundraising saying one of his proudest accomplishments was that he restored respect for america around the world. that's the type of arrogance we are
will win this election, finish what we started and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practi
the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul
want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> mitt romney's getting ready to climb back aboard his campaign bus and hit the road with a retooled strategy. between now and next month, presidential debates, he'll be making more frequent public appearances, highlighting his proposals to try to revive the u.s. economy. however, many republica are grumbling that romney's campaign itself is in dire need of a revival, especially after a secretly recorded complaints that the 47% of voters who support the president are dependent on the government. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itselves victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. i've demonstrated my capacity to help the 100%. >> after listening to a week's worth of criticism of her husband, especially from other republicans, romney's wife, ann, has had enough. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. it
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
's not battling for foreign aid for us or protection from the united states not merely fighting for its life as a sovereign nation or protecting its economy or way of life. it's literally fighting for the existence of the jewish people. jews have been haunted and marked for annihilation over 2000 years, within the lifetime of many of the present day jews, the painful memories of the holocaust are still firsthand for some of the survivors who are still alive. many israelis are one generation away from parents and relatives who were murdered in an attempt to do what iran has vowed it will do. and wipe them from the face of the earth. and having been so close to extension, no rational personal could deny iran's mad dog leader for nuclear weapon. and israel has been our ally in the middle east, the only nation in that part of the world, its democratic government and liberties come close to mirroring ours. we have far more, we have an organic relationship with them. a threat to israel is a threat to the united states. and when an israeli soldier is sworn into the military, he or she is taken to t
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
and the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> thank you, mr. chairman. ohio casts 188 votes for barack obama. >> that's not a surprise, ohio, not a surprise at all. that ohio puts president obama over the top. those who are remaining here, the delegates and the guests are cheering because he now once again officially is the democratic presidential nominee, so they can move forward on this. it's not going to be a surprise, jessica, and candy. you know what, i believe that joe biden will get the vice presidential nomination later tonight as well. >> this arena is about one third full for his speech. >> hold on a second. we'll get that microphone of yours working. we're not hearing you. biden will get the official vice presidential nomination tomorrow. jessica, give me a takeaway of what we've seen on this second day of the democratic convention? >> well, former president clinton had a three-fold mission to energize the party base, to draw a strong distinction for the democrats and republicans, and to sort of establish president obama's credibility on his economic vision. that
the president do over these past several months, i will not divide the united states of america but instead, bring us together. >> he divides us. he tries to divide america, tear america apart. >> to divide our great country. >> and divide the american people. >> i will not divide this nation. >> we don't want to divide america. we want to unite america. >> mitt romney over the course of the campaign. today he went on fox news where he defended what he said on the leaked tape. >> i recognize that those people who are not paying income tax are going to say gosh, this provision that mitt keeps talking about lowering income taxes, that's not going to be real attractive to them and those that are dependent upon government and those that think government's job is to redistribute, i'm not going to get them. i know there's a divide in the country about that view. i know some believe that government should take from some to give to the others. i think the president makes it clear in the tape that was released today that that's what he believes. i think that's an entirely foreign concept. >> the tap
to israel. those are the core demands of israel in the negotiations. the united states has always supported those positions. obama's people pull it out of the platform and the president chooses not to put it back in. very significant. >> sean: what do you make of -- we have two issues. number 1, the reaction to what i thought was a pretty stale, boring, cut-and-paste speech last night and the issue of the economy, the economic numbers that came out today, i mean, a net loss of another couple hundred thousand jobs, when you include the people who have left the labor force. your reaction? >> well, i think that the -- to me, i suppose in visual terms, you are right, the defining moment is that vote. i think that is likely to be remembered. but i think that in political terms, the enormous blunder was when speaker after speaker said, yes, we are better off now than we were four years ago. and that became a logo of this convention and it is very clear that the american people dont agree. and fortunately, romney is alert to it. they are pouncing right away and in all of the swing states he is run
to the president of the united states, who also admitted -- signed on to report last week about what would the consequences be. i'm glad you said what you said. because i think one of the consequences of striking now is that you would push iran towards the bomb. as you said, our national security establishment believes iran has not yet made that decision. they're still sort of weighing their options. one of my fears as guy who focuses on nuclear is if you attack them, then you're going to produce the very thing you seek to avoid. they're going to say oh yeah? we'll show you. because iran is one of those types of countries, very prideful. you attack us? fine. we'll show you, we're going to build a bomb. >> well, iran told the u.n. summit that any attack or sabotage of its nuclear facility would constitute nuclear terrorism. iran's foreign minister said all states have legal obligations to refrain from such an attack. >>> and in international news, the czech president is recovering from a bizarre attack. it happened while he was inaugurating a new bridge. you see that circumstance? that's a
one best seller in the united states. this is a topic a lot people are very curious about. so what extra pressure does that put on the u.s. government, mark? >> well, tremendous. now, if anyone remembers back to the pentagon papers case 40 years ago and the thought of could the government stop publication of the book? the legal standard is just too high. the fact is is the book's been out. and obviously media has copies of it. so it would be too difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. the publisher has ratcheted this up. not only increased the print run but expedited the publication date from the 11th to the 4th. so practically speaking there's not even any time for the government to do anything. >> some people might say this is disgusting. you come back, all these other guys are on your team and they don't do this and you want to get rich and you go and put a pseudonym and write the book. other people say no, what's wrong with what he did, after all, the president gave details of what happened in the raid. it's his version where they said bin laden was reaching for a gun an
